The Church of San Domenico was built in 1470 by Tagliavia counts, lords of Castelvetrano.
In the presbytery it preserves a precious decorative heritage in stucco of the highest artistic value; the highest example of Sicilian Mannerist culture.
Built between 1574 and 1580 by Antonio Ferraro from Giuliana and his sons Tommaso and Orazio.
The decorations depict themes of promises, prophecies, prefigurations of Christ, and they culminate with the genealogical tree of Mary, descending directly from Jesse.
It consists of 14 statues that seem to detach from the wall: a true masterpiece in the masterpiece, so much so that the church is called the "Sistine Chapel of Sicily".
